“This program is designed to provide producers from the Panhandle and South Plains with information regarding economics, budgets, farm bill, projections, risk management issues and timely production issues,” said Danny Nusser, AgriLife Extension North Region program leader for agriculture and natural resources in Amarillo.

Additionally, license holders and applicators can receive the training necessary to meet the new auxin certification requirement in order to apply new formulations of dicamba in the future.

Sharing Hope Ministry: Mentor Training @ Sharing Hope Ministry: Mentor Training
Jan 23 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

MENTORS NEEDED!
Sharing Hope Ministry: Mentor Training
Mentors are women helping guide a woman to a new way of living. They provide one on one encouragement as the women seek to change their thought process and live a life free from addiction and poor choices. A mentor listens without judgment and provides a safe person to talk with and learn from. A mentor also helps a woman see the progress she has made and continues to show support on the road to success.

So pray about it, and if you feel like God is calling you to this rewarding role as a mentor, we hope you will join us for a mentor training!

The training will be held:
January 23rd from 6pm-9pm
***There is an application to fill out and return before the training so if you are interested please give us a call at 806-358-7803

Have you ever felt God calling you to do something, and then thought, “What? God, there is no way I can do that. I am inadequate for that task.”

Remember, God doesn’t call the qualified, He qualifies the called!
Here is a story from a volunteer who thought God’s plans for her were crazy too, until she surrendered to his will and found out how rewarding the task was:
“It was announced at the banquet that our women’s ministry was starting a pen pal program to incarcerated women. My interest was immediately piqued! I thought that was odd since I didn’t like writing letters to people I did know, much less someone I didn’t know in prison and I had never even known anyone who had been incarcerated. Writing letters to my two pen pals became my new passion and within a few months I was eagerly visiting one on one with women in Potter County Detention Center. I cannot imagine my life without Sharing Hope Ministry, the inmates at Potter County, or the women at Patsy’s Place. God got my attention and He has been so faithful to use me, flawed as I am, to love the women we serve with His heart.”

Gene Shelburne: Community Bible Study
The Community Bible Study basically consists of the material I taught in the Bible course at Amarillo High for forty years. Tuesdays at 7 p.m., we’ll survey the New Testament. The classes run from 7 to 9:45 p.m. every Tuesday during the semester. The course will run 17-weeks, through May 15, basically following the school semester. We take off when they do.
We meet in the Fellowship Hall of the Anna Street Church of Christ, 2310 Anna. This is a non-denominational study with students from all sorts of churches (and no churches). Since space is limited, we need interested people to contact us at 352-3769.
